Depression

What is Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Therapy?

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a non-invasive FDA-approved procedure that uses painless magnetic pulses to regulate a person’s mood. During the treatment, painless electromagnetic coils placed on the patient’s scalp produce energy pulses that travel towards the nerve cells. This simply feels like fingers tapping on your head.  Once these cells are stimulated, neurotransmitters are released, improving and stabilizing the mood of an individual.

What is oral ketamine?

Ketamine has been used for decades as an anesthetic drug. Anesthesiologists often give patients ketamine to keep them comfortable and relaxed during surgery. But in recent years, researchers have discovered new therapeutic benefits to ketamine.

Studies have shown that ketamine may help lift treatment-resistant depression. Patients with chronic pain have also found that ketamine eases their symptoms. Today, doctors are exploring the ways ketamine can relieve pain and boost your mood.

If you decide to try ketamine, your provider decides how to administer your treatment. Many people eventually choose to receive IV infusions. But if you prefer to avoid needles, oral ketamine is also an option.
